Evaluating the Child with Fever

Sunday, 02 November 2008 12:26

Fever is a symptom and not a disease. It is the body's normal response to infections, a response which stimulates the immune system by releasing and activating white blood cells and interferon. A fever in the range 100 to 104oF is not harmful and is most commonly simply due to the body responding to a viral pathogen. Less frequently, fever may be due to bacterial causes.
